1031 Exchange Coordinators chooses Drupal for…

its open source Content Management System.

I knew you all were wondering and waiting with baited breath ever since I solicited opinions on Friday’s Link it up! for your likes and dislikes of the different plans we were looking at. I had a say in the matter somewhat, but I think what got our consultant and owner to agree on most was the low cost for a great service that just came out with a new version not long ago. Also, Drupal just revamped Fast Company‘s site and blogs, which speaks volumes about the company.

So, in the next weeks we will be transferring over everything from our old site to the new one as well as this blog to our new blog, which will be hosted in conjunction with the website. As such, I may be a little more incommunicado, but still checking on things often.

Any tips and tricks you may have found with using Drupal would be appreciated.

Link it up! RE.net Open Source Edition

As we work to get our website 2.o‘ed, we are in the process of determining what Open Source Content Management System (CMS) to use. We want a CMS that will interface with our SalesNet Customer Relationship Manager (CRM). We may be willing to move over to a Sales Force CRM if necessary. Also, we want to be able to have all of our calls-to-action that are based on Seth‘s Permission Marketing to easily transfer into our CRM lead files. As well, we want to be known as the most user-friendly experience of any 1031 Exchange website. We want people that find us to stay because of the great experience they’re having. Yes, I recognize a lot of that has to do with quality content. But, if the eye doesn’t like what it sees, it won’t stay long (as you all know very well). So, those are our basic desires from the CMS.

So, do we stay with WordPress or go with Typepad, Drupal, Joomla, etc.? Who do you use? Why do you like them? What back-end CRM are you using and how well do your CMS and CRM co-exist?
